Testing Services

The mission of the TJC Testing Services is to provide high-quality testing services that observe and adhere to the National College Testing Association's Professional Standards and Guidelines in order to meet the needs of our students, faculty and community members.

The Testing Center exists to support the integrity of the testing process by creating a quiet, comfortable and clean environment conducive to productive testing. Friendly, courteous and supportive, the Testing Center collaborates with faculty, administrators, other colleges and universities, testing vendors and national organizations to stay abreast of best practices.
